Notes: HAZY TRIPLE IPA: This I believe is the most hoppy beer we have ever produced... Brewed with Strata hops, then the fun begins. We dryhopped this beer SIX times!!! First with more Strata, then, Citra, them a with a hit of Sabro and Motueka, Again with Mosaic and New Zealand Cascade, then with More Strata, and finally even more Strata.

4.54/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Soft and and lightly cloudy yellow body; incredibly thick and creamy white head, dense and lasting with sticky rings and patches inside the glass. Beautiful fresh fruit aroma; orange and pineapple, papaya and mango; floral. Piercing sweetness with citrus tanginess in the flavor; powdered sugar; intense underlying bitterness. Heavy body; biting and acidic; alcohol warmth; semi-sweet but also with a strong dry finish.

What an immensely intense triple IPA! It brings strong appealing elements visually and to the nose. The taste, though, will really grab you with amazing depth and structure, full of hop fruitiness and bitterness, all riding atop a soft, biscuit-like malt base. This is just one beautiful and incredible beer!

4.48/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

L: A murky pale apricot-orange with three fingers of ivory head settling down to one which climbs the glass but leaves no lace.

S: Mineral notes, citrus, lighter stonefruit and pine. Sweet.

T: Follows the nose in part. The head is sweet and delicious. The taste has a lot of orange candy sugar, a little boozy heat which I find a nice fit in the profle also dominated by pine bitterness and herbal and very spicy notes.

F: Best aspect of the beer, the weight and mouthfeel, while not crushable, it amazingly approachable for the ABV. Very smooth and mellow. Not overbearing as I expected it to be.

O: Different experience than the other review: Tasted no dankness and felt it very bitter on the finish. Really good sweetness all around.

Murky granola tan - ultra smooth. Sticky ivory lacing. Alcohol completely masked. No hop cough. No bitterness. Dankness in the finish. Big body, creamy.
